Wondering about the name[edit]

Considering how many Hungarian-based names are in use in terms of Reach geography, I would submit (and speculate) that the use of "BARS" in the tactical info from security cameras is in fact supposed to be an abbreviation for Baracs rather than literally "Bars". Other abbreviations are used in these Tactical callouts throughout the game, such as VISGRD, SZURDK RDG, ÜTKZT, FARKS LK, EPSZ, or NW ALXDRA. We don't take those as literal spelling, but as abbreviation. I submit that with its Hungarian origin, BARS is in the same situation. -ScaleMaster117 (talk) 11:11, 17 April 2016 (EDT)

Seems reasonable, though the only issue may be that it could be considered too much speculation. It does make sense though. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 11:41, 17 April 2016 (EDT)
